Are you having relationship difficulties? Do you feel stuck/hopeless? Are you suffering from a loss? Are you struggling with a life transition? Maybe you have days where you feel totally alone, overwhelmed or misunderstood. You may be holding all of this inside or maybe you've tried to talk to friends or family, but just end up confused. You don't have to struggle with this by yourself. I'd like to help guide you through your struggles and help you to find the true joy in living again (or maybe for the first time).

Life is difficult, and the goal is not to live an easy problem-free life, but to learn to face the adversities of life and engage with it. Often when we get overwhelmed we either try to avoid our problems, overthink them, or just simply feel stuck because of them. It can be helpful to understand ourselves, our patterns, and narratives. Examining the life we have been living can get us closer to the liveliness and vitality hiding beneath the clutter of our complexes and trauma.

This can be achieved by providing a neutral safe environment and customizing an individualized treatment plan that best fits our lives' challenges and difficulties. Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, depression, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Overcoming these symptoms can be possible by collaborating with you through the process of grief and healing and help you recover the motivation, perspective, and joy.

Having worked with individuals struggling with addiction, mood disorders, trauma, and intimacy, I respect the difficulty that comes with recognizing a need for change.
Building momentum towards change and turning it into action can be difficult. It can even feel impossible. We all have moments of doubt, self-criticism, and feelings of emotional unrest. Whether it is rooted in infancy, adulthood, or anywhere in between, emotional pain from the past can very easily reverberate into our present and future. Therapy is a means towards forging a new relationship with self and the larger system we operate in. Whether you are struggling with post-traumatic stress, addiction, building intimacy in relationships, responding to emotions, or the stress of being human, it is important to know you are relatable.
